Just a meta remark

> What can I say ... I actually said in that discussion that the right choice is to introduce a different protocol, i.e., request:onCancel: or something similar. Now we'll end up with a new protocol anyways - I don't expect Pharo to change (too much pride involved)

This is not a question of pride. 
	do not imply that we do not have serious users that would like to avoid move :)
	do not imply that we do actions based on pride, this was not the case. Since the old
	protocol was wrong people preferred to see it fixed - at that time it was not clear that compatibility with squeak 
	could make sense. The deprecation only works if you add a different name. And this was not what we wanted at that time. 
	I contacted damien to see what he is thinking and if there is something we could do.
	Because we may introduce request:onCancel: and rewrite the old senders.
